8 Online Photography Portfolio No-No’s @MediaNovak
For any photographer, an attractive and an effective portfolio website is the most valuable asset. An online portfolio reveals the photographer’s priceless credentials to the entire world. The common mistakes that photographers make when creating their own portfolio are discussed below.
1. Splash page
Do you really need a whole page dedicated to your name or the word “Enter”? Visitors probably know your name if they’re visiting the home page, and you ought to have your name present somewhere on every other page in your photography portfolio. Don’t force them to find your frilly little entrance link on the splash page, just get straight to the point.
2. Information overload
Information overload is a big no-no. Online visitors do not want to read unnecessary information; it will either bore or confuse your site visitors. Cramming too much information will most likely clog content as well. When there’s too much information, prospective clients will most likely go somewhere else.
